The Norwegian Ministry of Culture is going to launch a consultation on unifying the country’s gambling laws into a single piece of legislation. The new bill would bring together the existing Lottery Act, Gambling Act and Totalisator Act under a group of gambling laws that would apply to the entire Norwegian market.

The consultation will run through to September 29, with a range of stakeholders invited to give their opinions on the proposals.

“The purpose of the bill is to improve responsible gaming [standards] and to prevent problems and other negative consequences of gambling,” Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Abid Q. Raja said.

“We still want voluntary and non-profit purposes to benefit from the profits that gambling generate, and the bill facilitates this, but at the same time also demands more efficiencies from Norsk Tipping,” Raja added.

Among the key proposals in the bill are for Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto to retain the exclusive right to offer gambling. Both operators would be subject to strict state control, including the government having a final say on board appointments to each business.

The bill would also have the Ministry of Culture assume responsibility for all elements of the gambling market, including rules governing the horse racing sector, which is currently overseen by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food.

The country’s regulator Lotteritilsynet would also be given more power to ensure that gambling is taking place legally. This would include ordering internet service providers to notify users that when they see marketing from offshore operators, this is both unlicensed and illegal.

Aside from traditional gambling, the consultation will also gather opinions on loot boxes in video games and whether these features should be covered by the new set of laws.

Merkur Increases Stake in Betcenter Group

Merkur Sportwetten GmbH, a subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group, has increased its holding in the Belgian sports betting company Betcenter Group from 50.1% to 74.9%.

Business relations have existed between Merkur Sportwetten and Betcenter for approximately four years. Merkur purchased a share of 50.1% of Betcenter at the beginning of 2018. This holding has now been increased by 24.8%. After the partial sale, Seydi Tekin will remain the managing partner of Betcenter for the long term; Carsten Schaudienst will continue to be active as a board member.

 “In 2018, we decided to sell part of our business in order to be able to further expand our business activities in Belgium and grow more strongly as a company. We found an ideal partner in Merkur Sportwetten, which supports us as a technology partner for system bets as well as financially. The partnership quickly brought benefits and we were able to double our turnover in the past two years,” Seydi Tekin said.

 “Together, we want to increase the already large footprint of Merkur Sportwetten under the Betcenter brand in Belgium. In line with this, we will further extend the omnichannel product offering (physical as well as online) in the coming months,” Markus Ettlin, Managing Director of Merkur Sportwetten, said.

Booming Games presents Howling Wolves

According to accepted practice, during a close encounter with a wolf, people should do the following:

  • Stand tall and make themselves look larger.
  • Calmly and slowly back away, always maintaining eye contact.

“Not so with Booming Games’ latest and greatest, Howling Wolves”, says Director of Product Shane Cotter. “Now when you scream ‘Wolves!’ it will be a cry of excitement and anticipation as you wait to see how rich they’re about to make you.”

This medium volatility 5×3 slot brings you deep into the native American environment, populated by one of the most important animals in their culture. For native Americans, the wolf represents courage, strength and loyalty. Some of their cultures even believe these majestic creatures to be a part of the family, also believing that members of their clan can take on the appearance and attributes of a wolf.
While Booming Games doesn’t suggest you should try this, we do suggest that instead you try spinning the reels of Howling Wolves to see if you have what it takes to be as successful a hunter as a wolf.

And there’s good hunting to be had in Howling Wolves; with a max win factor of 5,000 times your bet. Not surprising when you see how feature-rich the game is. In the Howling Wilds feature, superimposed wilds land on the the gameboard whilst the reels are in spin. There’s a real possibility of players having all 15 positions turned wild! Then we have the Alpha Wolf feature, where the more wolves howling in the middle of your screen, the more of the highest paying symbol will burst onto your screen, setting you up nicely for some potentially booming wins. Couple these features with retriggerable Free Spins and you’ve got a recipe for success.
